Grove Place is a most exclusive and sought-after location, tucked away in a tranquil spot behind the High Street and within minutes of Lymington’s world-renowned sailing facilities with deep water marinas, the Royal Lymington Yacht Club and the Lymington Town Sailing Club as well as stunning coastal walks. The Georgian market town of Lymington offers extensive restaurants and boutiques and a picturesque harbour and is surrounded by the outstanding natural beauty of the New Forest National Park. To the north is the New Forest village of Lyndhurst and Junction 1 of the M27 which links to the M3 for access to London. There is a branch line train link to Brockenhurst Railway Station (approximately 5.5 miles) which provides a half hourly service to London Waterloo with a journey time of approximately 90 minutes.
The house has been superbly extended and updated in recent years and offers exceptionally comfortable accommodation with a superb finish in a highly convenient location. Approached over a long garden path through a lawn garden, there is a recessed front door and porch that opens onto an open hall with staircase to the first floor. There is a wc on the right hand side and a very attractive sitting room with wooden flooring, a chimney breast with space for an electric fire that is flanked by built in shelving units with cupboards under. Wide folding wooden glazed doors separate the sitting room from the kitchen / dining room which allow flexibility to create distinct rooms or a more open plan arrangement. The kitchen / dining room has a tiled floor and extensive work space with fitted cupboards and a large central island unit. There is a wide range of built in appliances and space for an eight seat dining table as well as a sunny seating area in the recent extension which has French windows onto the courtyard garden and a very attractive lantern roof.
Upstairs the landing opens onto a bright, west facing double master bedroom with built in wardrobes and a modern, fully tiled en-suite shower room. There is a further double bedroom, also with a built in wardrobe and a third bedroom that is currently arranged as a study. There is a separate family bathroom with a bath and shower over, wc and basin.
The lawns, gardens, driveways and roof gutters are maintained under a communal maintenance contract. A paved pathway leads through a level lawn garden to the property’s front door. To the rear, the walled courtyard garden faces east and has been tastefully planted with shrubs for year round colour. There is a gate which provides rear access and also leads to a courtyard where the garage is located and also to the communal gardens.
Living in Lymington
This vibrant and picturesque Georgian market town, positioned between the Solent, Lymington River and the New Forest, has been a massive draw for many people over the years.
It has always attracted ‘yachties’ as it’s considered the UK’s sailing capital with its boatyards, marinas and sailing clubs. It is also popular with families and retirees escaping London and the Home Counties in search of a better quality of life, often light-heartedly referred to as ‘Richmond by the Sea’. It’s also the choice for many in the New Forest who are considering downsizing, but want to remain in the area.
Lymington is a lively hub. It has a very distinctive centre with many independents (such as Elliotts of Lymington for designer fashion) as well as a strong smattering of top quality names (including Musto and Waitrose). A tasty range of eateries includes cafes, pubs and restaurants – check out two good tapas bars, Elderflower on Quay Hill (the chef is ex-Chewton Glen) and stylish Stanwells House Hotel. And every Saturday the High Street is taken over by a proper, old-fashioned market with everything from fresh fruit and vegetables to flowers and plants, fashion to fishing equipment, and vintage collectables to artisan food producers.
Property ranges from elegant period townhouses in the town centre to big family homes down leafy lanes ‘South of the High Street’ and new waterside development. Looking for an Estate Agent in Lymington? Spencers are here to help.
